avoid diebold: register absentee
Avoid the questionable Diebold machines. Register as an absentee voter so that you can have a receipt of your vote. In many states, this takes quite a while so DO IT NOW. [I'll still love you even if you vote for someone i don't like, but i'll be very angry with you for not voting.]
If you’re in California, here’s the form. It takes all of 30 seconds to fill out.
